Finally had success at a better plating shop and got some parts back. I'm just starting to fiddle with these, so I'll add more as I go. 5 colors may take a while  Grin Grin

 First off none of this would be possible without Alan Tani and the Ohana and all the great custom components made by some very talented people. I am not one of them. My parts are figments of my imagination, and brought to life by a local "one man shop" machinist trying to scratch out a living. His talent goes beyond my relm of thinking, but somehow he puts my thought into real parts. I'm still pinching myself.

 P.S. sorry no AT wrench in the picture, I gifted it to Chris, my machinist

  Now off to dungeon I go to build me some frankenreels.

  Here is a narrow cortez 4/0 to start the mayhem.

I love the look of the rings inside. Just like a Newell kit.
Very well done indeed.

The blue reel is easy on the eyes...almost too pretty to fish. The black reel looks sinister...reminds me of Darth Vader.
